Season 1 - Episode 103

click for larger image Artist Hunt Slonem divides his time between his New York studio and the south Louisiana countryside. His skillful use of color and collection of Victorian antiques are evident at Albania, his plantation home outside of Jeanerette, where we met to discuss his latest works. In this episode we’ll also take a tour through a Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix to appreciate the recently installed glass artwork by Dale Chihuly; the Orlando Philharmonic brings classical music to local elementary schools; and a young musician finds that playing music helps him through hard times. We’ll explore the Rural Life Museum and discover what a Louisiana Treasure we have there.

Season 1 - Episode 102

click for larger image LPB Producer Tika Laudun interviews Publisher Frank Eakin and Acadamy Award-winning actor Louis Gosset, Jr. about the 1853 memoir, “Twelve Years a Slave.” Without the work of Dr. Sue Eakin, the compelling true story might have slipped into obscurity. Albuquerque printmaker Ray Maseman’s inventive crew of animal characters comes from dreams, myths and children’s stories. Maseman discusses the role of the penguin, the giraffe, and other archetypes in his clever drawings. We’ll hear the music of an Ohio-based indie band, Dave Buker and the Historians; and in our Louisiana Treasures segment, we’ll explain how the architecture of shotgun houses came to New Orleans.
